Overview

Named One of Riffle's Ten Best Haunted House Books of All Time

Built at the turn of the twentieth century by one of the richest and most powerful men in the world tucked away in the pristine Pocono Mountains, Summer Place, a retreat for the rich and famous, seems the very essence of charm and beauty, a scene borrowed from a wondrous fairytale of gingerbread houses, bright forests, and glowing, sunny meadows.

But behind the yellow and white trimmed exterior lurks an evil, waiting to devour the unwary...

Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy s investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with the event. But Summer Place has other plans...

As Summer Place grows stronger, Kennedy, along with the paranormal ghost hunting team, The Supernaturals, sets out to confront...and if possible, destroy...the evil presence dwelling there.

Making a deadly haunted house scary proves too much of a challenge for Golemon in this listless debut of a series featuring a team of professional ghost-hunters, led by behavioral sciences professor Gabriel Kennedy. Kennedys reputation had been tarnished by the unexplained disappearance, in 2003, of one of his students, who was reported by eyewitnesses to have been pulled into a wall during an investigation at the Pocono Mountains mansion known as Summer Place. Summer Place was said to have inspired Shirley Jacksons The Haunting of Hill House; however, the allusions to that classic serve only to demonstrate the absence of subtlety and genuine chills in this book. Years after the students disappearance, the ambitious television producer of a paranormal reality show plans a live Halloween special at Summer Place and persuades Kennedy to participate. The academic recruits a predictably oddball group of allies, including a onetime leader of the Crips who had since become one of the most gifted software designers in the world and a woman possessed by the spirit of a dead musician. Weak writing doesnt help this heap of clichés come together. (Oct.)
